It was time for the seasoned veterans to show off their bean-bag prowess on Tuesday, as Ryan Dempster and David Ross went head-to-head in the final first-round matchup of the Beautyrest Baggo Classic. Dempster made sure to stretch out before taking his turn, but limbering up did not help his game. The right-hander managed just five points over the two rounds, putting him far outside of the championship round. Ross was a little more successful, coming within one shot of facing Will Middlebrooks in the finals, but fell just short. Check out all the action in the video above.
